A fair few places in Oz look like missing out.

Tonight in Chillagoe.

It will probably be completely cloudless tomorrow morning for the eclipse, and I'll have no excuse for not getting up to watch it...

Very quiet on here...hopefully everyone is out enjoying this run of amazing weather..we could use an inch or 2 of rain but apart from that no complaints...El Nino looking ominous though..


To be getting 2-3 days a week of small boat fishing weather this time of year is also amazing..I have never seen such constant congestion at the Mission Beach ramp ever before..on a couple of occasions last week we sat on the water for up to nearly an hour waiting in line to retrieve the boat..

We watched a 15m Humpback breach more than 10 times today a couple of hundred metres away before he cruised past less than 50 metres from our boat...what a magic time of year it is..!the missus was complaining how hot and still it was out there today..obs say 28c max which is about as hot as its been this winter down here so far I'd say..

Low 30s for the last week or so.

Added my second doona to the doona cover a few weeks ago, but it's been way too hot. Back to one doona since last night, and way more comfortable.

Yesterday at 2pm my car said it was 38 degrees. It was probably about 34 I guess, and my car temp not to be relied upon.

Couldn't ask for better weather really.

First proper bit of humidity this morning ..it feels like spring is here already..Time to start some new season propagation...

Looking back to 2010 it was warm like this in August. I'd just moved to Chillagoe and was living in an unlined shed in the middle of town. Thinking I'd have to find somewhere else, when someone turned up on my doorstep and offered me a lined airconditioned shed...

I think we had our winter for a couple weeks in early May, and for a week maybe in June? But that's usual for here.

Grey clouds to the north and west, blue with high puffy clouds to the east and south - half an hour ago. Now it's full cloud cover, with dark grey to the west. Not expecting it to produce anything. Nothing showing nearby on the radar.

Nice weather, seems a bit humid at times then just goes back to the normal. Sometimes quite warm when going to sleep but then quite fresh on the wake up

And I've been lamenting the fact that we've had yet another sunny day. Dunno why it won't let up...

meteye has Gvale forecast to hit 30c next Fri/Sat, seems quite early but at the same time it does feel like that sort of weather. Enjoying the cool mornings.

There were a few drops yesterday, but wasn't measurable.

Regularly in the low 30s this last couple weeks. I'm not sure I saw winter. It was even warm for the festival, unusual.

Fantastic Simmo.

It's actually misting "rain" at the moment, not enough to get wet.
